“GumptionFest is Sedona’s grassroots, community-organized festival that was started as a way for local artists, performers and businesses to get up the gumption to get together and celebrate as well as share their art, creativity and passion.
It is most importantly an effort to help artists come together and support each other by way of inspiration, ideas, tools and much more. It helps create what we like to call an “artistic support system.” We therefore want to raise the bar for Sedona’s intake and output of creative expression and diverse understanding.”
This is going to be a lot of fun. Come on up to Sedona for the weekend and listen to some music, see some art, and enjoy the red rocks. Call us at 1-800-353-1239 to create your reservation today.
